Bob Â Dylan, has given the world some of the most touching and true words written about the 60’s events. The difficult times that Unites States faced with the Vietnam War, About 58,000 of Americans soldiers were pronounced Dead. He fought for his country with just a guitar, harmonica and his powerful words. He is no politician nor soldier but Â a patriot. Through his great talent he was able to reach people on another level and fighting for civil rights and against the Vietnam war. His songs like “The Times They Are A -Changin” and “Blowin’ in the Wind” are some of his greatest works composed during that decade. He used music as a powerful force to influence and unite people to stand as one for their rights.
But where has he been hiding since then? Since the 60’s Dylan has been busy touring all around the United States. Even now at the age of 69 he is a busy guy filled with important events (http://www.bobdylan.com/#/tour). He had just recently performed for president Obama at the white House. It looks as though Dylan has not changed, even with age Bob Dylan is that same young kid. President Obama talked about the performance in the rolling stone interview (http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/17390/209395?R …). Obama states that most artists that perform for him cant wait to take pictures with him and the first lady, but not Bob Dylan, he didn’t show up for the photo session, he only did the show and left. “Here’s what I love about Dylan: He was exactly as you’d expect he would be, finishes the song, steps off the stage Â – I’m sitting right n the front row – comes up, shakes my hand, sort of tips his head, gives me just a little grin, and then leavesâ¦.And I thought: that’s how you want Bob Dylan, right?” he goes on and stats “I am probably still more heavily weighted toward the music of my childhood than I am the new stuff. There’s still a lot of Steve Wonder, a lot of Bob Dylan, a lot of Rolling Stones, a lot of R&B, a lot of Miles Davids and John Coltrane”. So as you can see Bob Dylan is that same kid from the 60’s. He is still not a big of a fan of the government just as before.
Dylan is an amazing performer as he is a writer and a composer. His songs are to this day heard all over the united states and all around the world. Their content can be related to events that take place today in the world. That is what is so good about them, the words written decades ago are reborn in the events of war and hardship. Seeing him perform now is just like seeing him perform in the 60’s. Only his face has aged but he is that same kid with that same vision, it is like a magical phenomenon to watch him perform live. He has become a true American legend, you can see him for yourself as he tours. You can purchase his tickets on (http://www.charged.fm/performer/item/62/) Â Don’t miss this great chance.
